A woman waiting outside a convenience store for a ride home had her purse stolen by a man, officials said.

At about 1:42 a.m. Sunday deputies were called to the Circle K in the 5300 block of North La Cholla Boulevard about a theft.

A woman told deputies she was waiting for a ride home because she had been drinking alcohol.

She said a man approached her and after a short conversation grabbed her purse and ran toward a car. The car, an older model white Honda Civic, left southbound on La Cholla.

Anyone with information can call 911 or 88-CRIME.
